An Italian classic pasta dish from Bologna served with house made Bolognese. Finished with shaved parmesan and herbs
Castelvetrano, Lucques & Taggiasca olives
Michael was an excellent server. Took extra special care of our table. Thank you!
Delicious food and friendly service with a beautiful marina view. Can’t be beat!
Our first-time visit to this restaurant will certainly be the beginning of many more. Everything about our dining experience was flawless—a beautiful evening for outdoor dining, terrific Martini's, a great meal, a great wine list and all brought together by extraordinary service. A hidden gem. We will definitely return soon.
Wonderful outdoor view of Mt hood and the river ... excellent food and service!
The service was absolutely excellent. Our server was warm, personable, and took very good care of us. The food was good - our appetizer and one of the entrees was quite delicious and well prepared. The other entree, unfortunately, did not match the quality and taste of the other dishes. We had a pleasant meal on a warm, sunny evening drinking wine and enjoying a lovely riverfront view.
Il Terrazzo was a great option to celebrate my friend's birthday! We had a delicious bottle of wine, sat outside with views of the waterfront and enjoyed some delicious pasta and burrata (which I would definitely recommend). They did not disappoint, and we will definitely be back!
Wonderful food and service - great to sit outside and enjoy it all!
We ate outside on the waterfront promenade. Great location and Il Terrazzo is one of the best kept Italian eateries in the city. Michael has weathered the Covid storm to continue to crank out classic authentic fare. He personally goes across the pond to bring back some amazing wines. Our party of four shared a Burrata plate with devinely fresh mozzarella. We also shared an out of this world ceasar. You can't go wrong with any of the pastas. These are from scratch gems. Throw in the beautiful views right on the river walk and you have a complete dining experience.
Delicious dinner! Lovely waterfront view. Owner has curated a great menu. We’ll definitely be back. Only took a photo of the bread oops but it was delicious and the olives were from Italy.
Our go-to restaurant! Would absolutely recommend to anyone!
Unfortunately, nice people but 0/3 pasta dishes were not good at all. Go for the good wine selection, bread, and dessert.
Tables were spaced safely, staff were courteous and friendly. We felt very well cared for. Food was excellent. Diners should be aware, however, that the main courses all seem to be pasta, so don't expect chicken parmesan or veal scallopini. Wine selection extensive. All told, an excellent value for the evening.
Delicious and authentic. Chef owner was kind, enthusiastic, and very informative. Highly recommended
Absolutely exceptional food and service. This is the best Italian meal I've had outside of Italy. Amazing, Michael took the time to explain ingredients, regions where dishes got their inspiration and had fantastic recommendations.
Reservations are highly recommended and, on most days, necessary!
I will definitely be back.
What a wonderful place! The owner (Michael) is originally from a San Francisco foodie/restaurateur family and the cooking definitely shows that skill set. They will take excellent care of you whether a big group or a romantic evening. The lovely view of the Portland bridges is not to be missed and the atmosphere makes you feel like you are sitting on a Mediterranean promenade. We live locally and always thought that Il Terrazzo might be touristy, but its a real gem that might be the best kept secret in Portland. Enjoy!
Our seating outside was perfect with a great view of the marina. Our food was very good and the wine was wonderful. Our servers were super nice and corrected a little hiccup with our dinner order. All turned out just beautifully. We would definitely recommend the dessert! We enjoyed our 55th anniversary!
-staff and owner are always so friendly and accommodating. -food is wonderful
Great Italian food with superb service. We felt like we were in someone's private home.
Michael and his team produce a magical experience every night. Come for the food, leave with a new family!
LOVED this place. The service was exceptional. The meatballs were to die for! The bolognese was a little salty. Amazing wine, friendly and helpful staff, and beautiful ambiance.
Great place for a lunch date. Very private place to have conversations with Italian style music playing in the background. The views of the waterfront and marina makes it all worthwhile for an enjoyable experience with anyone.
Our server, Gretchen, was very attentive and made our visit memorable.
Birthday dinner! Amazing food and great ambiance!😊
If I said that this was my first time going out to eat since COVID started, please don’t think ill of me, assume I’m a hermit, or find this review tainted by the fact that I was in dire need to get out and break free from the confines of my house. All of that aside, I shall begin. Firstly, how have I lived in the Portland metro area for nearly 15 years and never once entertained the thought of venturing out along the south waterfront esplanade (parkway? walkway? boardwalk? promenade?) Start there and head down to the doors of Il Terrazzo, but remember first that you will need to secure parking. And a reservation. Joined by our dear friends from Washington with a penchant for great Italian food, we secured a 5pm reservation and were delighted by the quiet ambiance and near waterfront view. We have some favorite Italian places in the Seattle area that end up being a gauge for good/better/best. Il Terrazzo did not disappoint. In terms of ambiance, beat out my number one place and in terms of food, measured equally. Starting with the Caesar (Do. Not. Miss. This.) and the bread service with house olives (fantastic!), we moved on to some pretty authentic Italian dishes. The Zafferano (a saffron cream sauce) with ravioli was a bit of a miss - a heavier cream sauce and lacking the saffron I eagerly wanted. This dish would have been better with the addition of some fennel sausage and toasted walnuts. It was good, but the flavor wasn’t there and it didn’t wow us. The “cowboy pasta” was the special of the night and was my husband’s favorite by far, however I felt it tasted too salt heavy (I can’t remember the actual name). The fresh pesto with ravioli was incredible! I would have been content to eat a double portion to myself. Lastly, and the winner by majority was the Biscaiola. Every bite of this was heavenly, and though a cream sauce, it did not feel too heavy. With a combination of pancetta, sausage, and mushrooms one can never go wrong. Will definitely be returning!
We have eaten here several times and every meal has been excellent. The Burata is so good I dream about it! During COVID we have chosen to eat outside with a view of the Willamette. A little chilly this last time, but we bundled up. Great service and friendly staff.
Bruschetta? Amazing. Roasted tomato cream ravioli? Amazing. Tiramisu? Amazing.
Outstanding! The owner visited our table and not only helped us pair an outstanding wine to the house special but educated us about the wine. Amazing views!
Great service, lovely atmosphere, good pasta.
Tasty food, great view, good service. Will come there again.
Il Terrazzo has a bit of a feel of a wine cellar (if one is able to ignore the windows with a beautiful view of the Willamette riverfront!); it is quiet, the lighting is muted, and wine bottles are evident throughout. Our food was uniformly excellent, from the bread to the salad to the pasta to the dessert. The wine list is not huge, but is well-chosen. We were especially delighted with our waitress, who was attentive, helpful, delightful, and always available. At the end of the evening, when asked about the restaurant's "Il Terrazzo" wine (which we had enjoyed at a previous visit some time ago), she went out of her way to find a bottle in the "cellar," which we were then able to provide as a take-home memento for our guests. All in all, it was a perfect venue that provided us with a perfect evening! We will return.
We enjoyed our anniversary dinner here Feb 1st. It was nice, very good wine and service. Will go back.
Authentic Italian. Very good food. Will be awesome once Covid is gone.
Best aperol spritz. We will be back!!
Our server was very nice and helped make the experience good. Cannot remember the name of the dish we got but it was a mushroom, sausage and creamy cheese pasta. Very good and would get again.
Il Terrazzo is a brilliant gem! Michael (owner/chef/server as needed) has created a space for an exceptional dining experience. The food is exceptional, the wine (and knowledge of from Michael) is exquisite but the warmth and genuine nature of the staff exudes a true passion. Thank you for a lovely ladies night out!
The view on the river is stunning at night. All the pasta we had was exceptionally good. The sausage in particular was very flavorful. The wine list is very impressive and the service was excellent.
Great food and service, wishing they had had heaters or blankets, but it was fine!
Great restaurant that takes reservations for outside dining. Right on south waterfront with fabulous views.
This restaurant & food is amazing. The server was so sweet & everything was fast & perfect sized portions.
Exterior seating on the riverfront.
Great service, terrific food.
Fabulous wine list.
